Summary: Ability to automatically generate sheet index numbers, sheet sub-set index numbers, total sheets and total subset sheets numbers.

Description: I'd like the AutoCAD Sheet Set Manager to automatically generate sheet index numbers, sheet sub-set index numbers as well as total sheets and total subset sheets, without needing a computer programmer to write code. I'd also like the Sheet Set Manager to allow current sub-set custom properties.

How Used: I read the paper on filling in the gaps in Sheet Set Manager, and it was over my head. I'm a Civil Engineer, not a computer programmer. All the projects that I work on require sheet indexing, and I am perplexed as to why this wasn't default from the very beginning. Imagine if Microsoft had told Word users to number each page manually. Creating a Current Sheet Custom property and filling it in manually, though easier than opening and editing each drawing, is a chore, especially if sheet index numbers are changing.
Please AutoCAD, fill in the gaps in the Sheet Set Manager.
